SED 5450 - Introduction to Geology II

This course investigates the evolution of the northern Appalachian landscape with the help of small-scale geologic maps. The instruction attempts to make this geologic history consistent with Plate Tectonic (Continental Drift) Theory. It studies the evolution of other landscapes all over the world in the light of the geologic history of the northern Appalachians and Plate Tectonic Theory. The course includes at least three all-day field trips to localities within an area bounded by the Connecticut Valley of northern Massachusetts, the St. Lawrence Lowland near Montreal, and the White Mountains. The course requires three classroom hours and one two-hour lab per week.
